Dear Bill,

Thank you for the invitation to work on the evaluation of the series, "TV and the Classroom Teacher." I will be glad to come to Gainesville on Friday, October 30, to view the tapes.

Also I want to remind you that we talked about inviting the county superintendent-elect of Leon County to join us. His name is Freeman Ashmore and his mail can be sent to the county office.I have gotten a check from Steve and now will go about paying

I have gotten a check from Steve and now will go about paying bills so that I will not have to pay bail in order to attend the tape evaluation.

Sincerely,

(Mrs.) Nancy Benda

General Note

As a teenager Nancy was one of the first mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs, a job which earned her a trip to Hollywood to double for Ann Blythe in swimming parts for the 1948 movie "Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid". In 1966 Nancy starred in "Miss Nancy's Store" produced by WFSU. The show, one of the earliest children's television shows, later ended in August of 1967 due to lack of funds and Nancy went to work for the Florida Department of Education until she retired.
